Stick a fork in Romney he's done.

Lowering capital gains taxes will increase jobs and spur the economy. More people working means more government revenues.
Closing loopholes also forces corporations to pay more which, in turn, increases government revenues.
Pretty sure that's basic macroeconomics 101.


Mitt Romney can't do what you just said.

He can't just close loopholes to increase revenues.

He & Ryan signed the Norquist pledge. Closing loopholes would be a tax icrease & that's a no no.

Who is running against Ryan? Wouldn't it be poetic justice if he lost his seat as well?

Fox News does the heavy lifting to report how Benedict Hussein Obama betrayed our people in Benghazi and America. Can you say Manchurian Candidate?

Full title:... Hume: Mainstream Media ‘Remarkably Reticent’ to Pursue Benghazi Cover-Up, Burden Has ‘Fallen’ Onto Fox News video at link... Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume upbraided the press for its lack of interest in pursuing the Obama administration’s misstatements and dissembling on what they knew before and after the Benghazi terrorist attacks, lamenting on Fox News Sunday that “one of the problems we’re having here is, that it has fallen to this news organization, Fox News and a couple others, to do all the heavy lifting on this story.

Your side passed the legislation that caused the housing bubble and the nazis were left wing. Hitler and the Brownshirts advocated the nationalization of education, health care(adolfcare), transportation( GM-Government Motors), national resources, manufacturing, distribution and law enforcement. Hitler came to power by turning the working class, unemployed, and academic elite against the conservative republic. After Hitler's election ceased being a political conspiracy and was transformed into a fashionable social phenomenon, party membership was especially popular with educators, bureaucrats, and the press. Sound familiar?

lily,
You say military experience can be beneficial but NOT preferential.
Do you realize how stupid what you just said is?
You then proceed yo say that someone who was a POW salivates at the thought of a war?
McCain experienced episodes of torture, and refused an out-of-sequence early repatriation offer. His war wounds left him with lifelong physical limitations.
You are the Poster Child for stupidity, lily, and an example of voters responsible for why we have an idiot for president, who just left people to die in Libya, then lied about it.
Obama has no experience in anything except for politics. Based on the results of Obama and his OJT experience, his four years have not helped him, or us.
Has anyone ever told you you lack common sense?
I think that McCains unfortunate experience affected his mental capabilities to keep a calm and reasoned head in the face of conflict. He's a hot head, who goes around saying bomb, bomb, bomb Iran? He'd have had us in nuclear war within months. Romney is a money hungry zealot who would divert defense spending to make a personal profit; his friend is a ship builder; what a coinkydink.
What I said was not stupid; you are. Now, gfy

He has blamed the storm on the policies of George Bush and the fact that the Bush administration cut funding for the National Weather Service.

He is not "obviously" anything. He's been all over the map on multiple issues. You can't count on what he's said last month, 6 months or 4 years ago.
The backbone of the economy is middle class earnings/spending and increasing the GDP. There has been no evidence that trickle down economics significantly improves these - instead, the evidence is that capital gains have been increasingly housed and distributed outside of the borders over the last 3 decades.
Romney admits that closing loopholes will NOT increase government revenues. Instead, he claims that revenues will increase with productivity. Any increases in productivity at this point are due to the current administration and Congress' actions, and growth from the Romney/Ryan plan is far more optimistic from the politicians' mouths than from the economists' calculations.
Vote for whoever you want. Just don't say "it's a fact" when it's really "I believe".
My best hope is that if he's elected he'll use his venture capital background to shut off the flow of money OUT of the economy... AKA "it takes a thief to catch a thief" versus "a fox in the henhouse".
